✨ Sandals & Beaches Resorts 101 ✨
Thinking about an all-inclusive resort, but something that is family-friendly? Get married and want to escape to somewhere secluded for your honeymoon? Or how about a girls getaway with you and your besties?
Sandals & Beaches Resorts have you covered on all of the above, and if you can believe me, MORE. These resorts are the crème de la crème of all-inclusive, with destinations across the Caribbean with some of the most pristine beaches. The food is amazing, and service is stellar to boot.
Sandals is an adult-only option known for curating amazing romantic experiences for couples. They have earned a worldwide reputation as the place where 'love is all you need' because everything else is taken care of.
Beaches, on the contrast, is a family-friendly choice that continues to win award after award with three different resort destinations under the Beaches brand. Beaches offers vacations where kids, teens, and adults of all ages can do as much or as little as they want!
With over 15 Sandals & Beaches resorts, it can be difficult to narrow down what exactly you're looking for. With that in mind, I put together this list of my top 6 resort picks between both brands.

✨ Is All-Inclusive For You? ✨
If you are craving a vacation where you have NOTHING else to think about, then an all-inclusive vacation may be for you – even if you don’t drink alcohol. All-inclusive vacations are a true escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, without having to worry what the bill will end up at the end of your vacation. There are no limitations when it comes to eating out in the finest restaurants, enjoying live music and entertainment – you can truly do whatever your heart desires, whenever you want to do it.
I got back from Cabo San Lucas earlier this summer, and can't speak highly enough about all-inclusive resorts. It truly is a 110% rejuvenating, stress-free experience. If you have been missing cruising this year, visiting an all-inclusive is a close comparison that may even replace your favorite vacation option.
Broaden your horizons and visit somewhere new! And what better way to do so than with an all-inclusive resort, a place where you don't have to worry about a thing while you're there? The only thing you'll need to stress about is what cocktail you want to drink by the pool 💁♀️
There is always something to be thankful for.
